We are concerned with the existence and energy decay of solution to the initial boundary value problem for the coupled KleinGordonSchrödinger equations with acoustic boundary conditions.
1. Introduction
In this paper, we are concerned with global existence and uniform decay for the energy of solutions of KleinGordonSchrödinger equations:
where is a bounded domain, , with boundary of class , where and are two disjoint pieces of each having nonempty interior and are given functions. We will denote by the unit outward normal vector to . stands for the Laplacian with respect to the spatial variables; denotes the derivative with respect to time . Here is the normal displacement to the boundary at time with the boundary point .
The above equations describe a generalization of the classical model of the Yukawa interaction of conserved complex nucleon field with neutral real meson field. Here, is complex scalar nucleon field while and are real scalar meson one.
In three dimension, [1–5] studied the global existence for the Cauchy problem to
KleinGordonSchrödinger equations have been studied as many as ever by many authors (cf. [6–11], and a list of references therein). However, they did not have treated acoustic boundary conditions.
Boundary conditions of the fifth and sixth equations are called acoustic boundary conditions. Equation (1.1)_{5} (the fifth equation of (1.1)) does not contain the second derivative , which physically means that the material of the surface is much more lighter than a liquid flowing along it. As far as in (1.1)_{6} (the sixth equation of (1.1)) is concerned to the case of a nonporous boundary, (1.1)_{6} simulates a porous boundary when a function is nonnegative. When general acoustic boundary conditions, which had the presence of in (1.1)_{5}, are prescribed on the whole boundary, Beale [12–14] proved the global existence and regularity of solutions in a Hilbert space of data with finite energy by means of semigroup methods. The asymptotic behavior was obtained in [13], but no decay rate was given there. Recently, the acoustic boundary conditions have been treated by many authors (cf. [15–21] and a list of references therein). However, energy decay problem with acoustic boundary conditions was studied by a few authors. For instance, Rivera and Qin [22] proved the polynomial decay for the energy of the wave motion using the Lyapunov functional technique in the case of general acoustic boundary conditions and . Frota and Larkin [23] considered global solvability and the exponential decay of the energy for the wave equation with acoustic boundary conditions, which eliminated the second derivative term for . However, it is not simple to apply the semigroup theory as well as Galerkin's method in [23] because a system of corresponding ordinary equations is not normal and one cannot apply directly the Carathéodory's theorem. So they overcame this problem using the degenerated second order equation. And Park and Ha [20] studied the existence and uniqueness of solutions and uniform decay rates for the KleinGordontype equation by using the multiplier technique. Moreover, [20] proved the exponential and polynomial decay rates of solutions for all .
In this paper, we prove the existence and uniqueness of solutions and uniform decay rates for the KleinGordonSchrödinger equations with acoustic boundary conditions and allow to apply the method developed in [23]. However, [23] did not treat the KleinGordonSchrödinger equations.
This paper is organized as follows. In Section 2, we recall the notation and hypotheses and introduce our main result. In Section 3, using Galerkin's method, we prove the existence and uniqueness of solutions to problem (1.1). In Section 4, we prove the exponential energy decay rate for the solutions obtained in Section 3.
2. Notations and Main Results
We begin this section introducing some notations and our main results. Throughout this paper we define the Hilbert space with the norm , where is an norm and ; without loss of generality we denote . Moreover, norm and norm are denoted by and , respectively. Denoting by and the trace map of order zero and the Neumann trace map on , respectively, we have

A solution to the problem (1.1) on some interval will be obtained as the limit of as and . Then, this solution can be extended to the whole interval , for all , as a consequence of the a priori estimates that will be proved in the next step.
3.1. The First Estimate
Replacing , , and by , , and in (3.2), respectively, we obtain

We now estimate the last term on the lefthand side of (3.12) and the term on the righthand side of (3.12). Applying Green's formula, we deduce
Considering the equality

Hence,
Also,
Hence,
Replacing the above calculations in (3.12) and then taking the real part, we obtain

Also,
From (3.34)–(3.37), we conclude
On the other hand, we can easily check that

Replacing (3.40) in (3.32), we have
Combining (3.33), (3.38), and (3.41), we obtain
Integrating (3.42) from to , we have
Therefore, using the hypotheses on and , (2.7), (3.11), (3.29), (3.30), and Gronwall's lemma, we get

According to (3.9), (3.27), and (3.44), we obtain that
From (3.45)–(3.52), there exist subsequences , , and , which we still denote by , and , respectively, such that
We can see that (3.9), (3.27), and (3.44) are also independent of . Therefore, by the same argument as (3.45)–(3.61) used to obtain , , and from , , and , respectively, we can pass to the limit when in , , and , obtaining functions , , and such that
Thus, by the above convergences and (3.53), we can prove the existence of solutions to (1.1) satisfying (2.8).
3.4. Uniqueness
Let and be twosolution pair to problem (1.1). Then we put
From (3.2), we have

Adding (3.67), (3.73), and (3.75), we get
Applying Gronwall's lemma, we conclude that . This completes the proof of existence and uniqueness of solutions for problem (1.1).
4. Uniform Decay
Multiplying the first equation of (1.1) by and integrating over , we get
Taking the real part in the above equality, it follows that
Now, multiplying the second equation of (1.1) by and integrating over , we have
Taking into account (1.1)_{5} and (1.1)_{6} (the fifth and sixth equations of (1.1)), we can see that
Therefore (4.3) can be rewritten as
Adding (4.2) and (4.5), we obtain
By choosing and the hypotheses on , we get
So we conclude that is a nonincreasing function.
Now we consider a perturbation of . For each , we define

By definition of the function , Poincare's inequality, and imbedding theorem, we have
where is a Poincare constant. Hence, from (4.8) and (4.10), there exists a positive constant such that
for all and . This means that there exist positive constants and such that
On the other hand, differentiating , we have
where
Now, we will estimate the terms on the righthand side of (4.14).

We note that
where . By the above inequality and choosing such that

where is a positive constant. Now choosing sufficiently small, we obtain
where is a positive constant. Therefore,
From (4.12), we have
This implies the proof of Theorem 2.1 is completed.
